Born into a family of multi-star restaurant owners, Pierre Gagnaire obeys only to one rule: taste - the very stake of the art of cooking. A searcher of new tastes, he works with Hervé This, the world specialist of molecular gastronomy.
This is the story of an unlikely but fruitful partnership between high gastronomy and science. With a common passion for cooking, the artist and cook Pierre Gagnaire and the physico-chemist Hervé This have found the recipe for bringing out the best flavours from this disturbing combination. Throughout the film we are caught up in this creative energy, and we enjoy with Pierre and Hervé their common passion for reinventing cooking. At last we are given the secrets of this alchemy: in front of us, we see science giving the artist a new kind of independence that encourages him to create. Pierre Gagnaire's and Hervé This' project is simple and ambitious: to combine science and cooking just for the love of it.
